Mogul Glen A. Larson is taking legal action against Universal Studios executives, claiming he was underpaid for the 1970s and '80s shows he created and produced.

In his lawsuit, Larson is described as "probably the most successful creator/producer of television shows in Universal's history both in terms of revenue and critical acclaim".

The complaint reads, "Indeed, as the shows make more money for Universal, the deficit that Larson productions must overcome continually increases."

The amount Larson is demanding is unknown but his suit alleges he has generated hundreds of millions for Universal, reports Reuters.
